How to Make Warm Lemon Water

Making warm lemon water is not big deal, however, you should pay particular attention to a couple of things. The water you use should be lukewarm and purified. Avoid cold water but also super-hot.

Your body will have a difficult to adopt in the morning, to challenge it with ice cold water. It is also crucial to use fresh, organic lemons in your water, never bottled lemon juice.

How to do:

–           Squeeze 1/2 of a lemon into a glass of warm water and drink it before you eat anything.

–           This can be also a nice pre-workout drink.

Why is this simple beverage so effective?

Here are a few good reasons why you should consider that:

–           Improves Digestion:

All that you give to your body should be digested why the body organs work hard. Lemon juice has the ability to flush away toxins and unwanted materials left from the digestive process. That happens because the lemon juice is similar in atomic composition to saliva and digestive juices and is able to break down material and encourages the liver to produce bile.

Warm lemon water helps when heartburn, indigestion and bloating occur, as it is a great tonic. It is recommended by The American Cancer Society, for encouraging regular bowel movements.

–           Balances pH:

Lemons belong to the most alkalizing foods that you can eat. Because they are acidic on their own it can seem untrue, however, in the body, lemons are alkaline. The lemon’s citric acid does not create acidity when it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood.

As most of the people are too acidic, drinking warm lemon water reduces overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints and reducing the pain and inflammation which many people feel.

–           Boosts Energy and Improves Mood:

For you who are often lazy and cranky in the morning, or any time of the day, considering a little glass of lemon and water will be your solution. You should know that your energy comes from atoms and molecules in your food.

It happens when positively charged atoms flood the digestive tract and mix with those that are negatively charged. As lemons contain more negatively charged ions than positive ions, it gives you a boost as the warm drink enters your digestive tract.

Even the scent of lemons alone can elevate energy levels and improve your mood. Lemons also help reduce anxiety and depression and promote clear thinking.
